From Monday 23rd March onwards, schools will be closed until further notice.

Children whose parents are critical key workers and vulnerable children will be provided with additional support if necessary. This is part of the country’s ongoing response to coronavirus (COVID-19).

Examples of these critical workers include NHS staff, police and supermarket delivery drivers who all need to work in order to support the country’s efforts in tackling the virus. Vulnerable children include those who have a social worker and those with Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs). Once the government has released further guidance, we will publish this here.

Many parents working in these sectors may be able to ensure their child is kept at home. Every child who can be safely cared for at home should be to limit the chance of the virus spreading.
